I was listening to the radio this morning. The announcers were discussing bartering.

You know how that works, I have four apples and you have four pears. I want four pears and you want four apples. I trade you the apples for the pears. What a neat concept...I want "A"...you want "B"...we determine it's a fair trade...I get what I want, you get what you want...no money exchange...

However, uncle sam wants this claimed as income? HUH??? Doesn't uncle sam get it? It's a trade. There is no income. So to uncle sam, I say pppppfffftttt.....

...and that's what I think....so there...

Besides...uncle sam gets quite enough money from us already. He just needs to learn how it spend it much more wisely....stop adding pork programs to the budget.....

Oh...and by the way....for those who are tired of seeing certain individuals on the news, etc.....I suggest either (a) use your remote to change the channel or (b) turn the television off and read a book......expand your cranium...

If that doesn't work, perhaps you are just cranky......

Tune in tomorrow for an economics lesson.....
